Out of the Blue

So I'm on the road and someone enters ahead of me via an onramp seeming without looking, since they basically cut me off. In a rare fit of cosmic justice, the car was for sale, and had the owner's phone number on the back. Now I can't count the number of times I wished I could tell some inconsiderate driver what I thought of their behavior, so I wish I could say I actually worked myself up to calling to leave them a message telling them their antics were not appreciated, but I just let it go. Too bad, that could have been pretty funny.

8800GT just came out. It is almost as powerful as the 8800GTX and it costs half as much. All other components have very cheap and powerful options.

It runs pretty decent and looks damn good on my X2 4200+ and 7900GT slightly over clocked.

OK people need to stop assuming BioShock is some kind of benchmark.

1) it's a console game
2) see number 1

The polygon counts are low. LOW. The lighting isn't over-the-top. Shadows are pretty standard for today's tech. Environments are SMALL. It doesn't do anything demanding or cutting edge. Crysis in no way is comparable to BS technically. BS has very solid art direction.

blue should have called the guy and asked him to meet at the bad part of town to 'view' the car as a potential buyer. then simply not show up.

had a chance to try the demo. horrible @ 800 x 600. BioShock is totally playable with all settings maxed out @ 1920 x 1200...

it runs very fluid for me at 1048 res, but with gfx options on LOW, it looks like total fucking ass, with shit popping in like 10ft in front of you

just horrible, horrible garbage - it may look amazing at higher options, but it cant scale for SHIT .. ive got 5 year old FPS games that look 20x better and run smoother too

very disappointing tech, really.. its too conditional and dependent

What I want are some of those orange stickers that have to be surgically removed from the window for the assclowns whose cars are so special they have to be parked across two spaces: "Please help me - my owner is a dipshit!".

Could also be used for the hair-trigger alarm types.

Just get some cards or better make your own...

Of course flash these at the wrong person and chances are you may need a weapon or at least know how to fight.

Now why was I certain when I was reading the first part of this OoTB that it would turn out Blue wasn't the type of guy to actually go through with it and make the call? Good for you Blue. As a non-driver (never owned a car in my life) I've never understood road rage or even road anger.

Ineed. Stephen...I'm a little dissapointed. It's not like they would have even known who you were. You should have told them they almost drove a schoolbus of kids off the road.

I'm dyin to get that one...

I would, but as I only have a PS2 (and not an XBox360 or PS3), there's little point. Besides, I'd rather get myself a full electronic drumkit... much more versatile.

Well, the only thing after that that's stopping me is a lack of space.

Oh, and neither of my roommates would have any of it, I think. *shrug* Ah well.

I checked out Rock Band (drums) at my local Best Buy... it was actually a lot of fun, but I'd still prefer playing the real drums. Synth kit preferably (so I can wear headphones and not wake up the neighbors).

When the person tries to grab you - like the bully or the person tries to give you a wedgie - they just rip away.

Yes but then eat your shorts comes to mind.
